First Play

Updated: Jul 4

Joining a toy library while your baby is young can open up a world of discovery but can also be a little overwhelming to find toys that suit their current stage of development. Below you will find some of our toys recommended for the very first stages of play.


Activity Gyms and Pram Toys

Learning basic cause and effect by reaching and swiping at hanging items.


Mat Play and Tummy Time

Self-correcting weighted toys with chimes

Learn cause and effect by reaching and swiping, making the toy ‘chime’.

Position weighted toys to encourage tummy time and rolling over.

Mirrors

Encourage tummy time, head control, social emotional skills and self-awareness.

Activity Centres

Encourage tummy time, head control, cause and effect, reaching out and hand-eye coordination.
